What is MainStreet Oceanside?


MainStreet Oceanside had its beginnings in the Downtown Business Association, formed in the early 1990’s as a loosely organized group of business people who met on a regular basis to discuss common concerns. By the end of the decade, as business conditions improved, the group decided to elevate the Downtown Business Association to a more organized approach to downtown issues and applied for state recognition as a certified California Main Street city. Official status was granted in July 2000 and MainStreet Oceanside Inc. was formed as a 501(c)6 non-profit corporation.


How is MainStreet Oceanside funded?

Initially funded by a financial committment from the City of Oceanside, MainStreet Oceanside is a completely self-supporting non-profit corporation. Revenues are earned by the organization through the operation of the Farmers Market, the Sunset Market and the Beach Services Program. Revenues are supplemented with advertising sales, membership dues, grants, sponsorships and donations.

PAY LATE FEES HERE:

 

Late fees are calculated as follows:

Our permanent retail vendors qualify for a significant discount on booth fees by paying in advance for the upcoming month. Nearly all of our vendors pay their booth fees in full and on time. Unfortunately, our Sunset Market staff spends a significant amount of time and energy collecting from the small number of vendors who do not pay on time.
Effective with July 2012 rents, the following late fee structure will apply:

1) Booth space rent for the upcoming month is due in full on the last day of the previous month. Payments made after 5:00 p.m. on that day will incur a late charge of $10.00.

2) If booth space rent is not paid in full prior to the FIRST MARKET of the month, an additional $10.00 late fee will apply for a total of $20.00.

3) If payment in full is not received prior to the SECOND MARKET of the month, an additional $10.00 fee will be assessed for a total of $30.00.

4) Any vendor who attempts to enter the THIRD MARKET of the month without previously settling their outstanding balance may be denied entry by the Street Marshall. In addition, any vendor who has not paid their rent in full prior to the THIRD MARKET may lose their permanent vendor status AND lose the privilege of paying reduced booth fees in the future. An additional late fee will be assessed for a total of $40.00.
